Hello Kids Dentistry is a pediatric dental practice providing comprehensive dental care for infants, children, and young adults in a warm, caring and child-friendly environment. We are proud to be serving children in the communities of Bothell, Woodinville, Kenmore, Mill Creek, Lynnwood, Kirkland, and surrounding areas.

At Hello Kids Dentistry, we know how important a child’s early dental experiences are and how they set the foundation for a lifetime of excellent oral health. Our team has a holistic approach to oral health which focuses on prevention and overall health, not only treatment. Preventive dentistry is particularly important for children, whose teeth, mouth and gums are still developing. Preventing abnormal growth and cavities in children is easier, painless and less costly than treating dental problems after growth is complete. More importantly, having a healthy mouth helps children maintain better nutrition, self-confidence, and overall health through life.

At Hello Kids Dentistry, we provide all children access to quality and affordable oral health care in a technologically-advanced & comfortable setting. We give you and your child something to smile about with our personalized care and variety of services.
